Hi Guys

I have recently installed a Hills UHF aerial and am getting the no signal message on TV 1 2 3 4 and a few other channels. TV is a Panasonic TH-L32E5Z which is in the bedroom, this model has built in freeview,

Strange thing is the TV in the lounge (LG Plasma) which also has freeview built in receives all channels with no issues,

Am I missing something here?

What can I do?

Thanks,

Russell

Sounds like a cabling problem. Presumably you have a splitter somewhere? Check all connections. Try the Panasonic in the Lounge using the cable connected to the LG. What location and transmitter are you tuning to? Are you receiving any channels at all?

Channels I receive Maori/Prime/Trackside/Choice/TVSN/Yes/Parliament/Sommet/First Light/Chinese/Radio Stations

I don't receive 1/2/3/Four/1+/2+/3+/C4/Al Jaz/The Shopping Channel/Te Reo

Assume I have a splitter or I would have nothing,

I am in Pukekohe and have pointed my aerial the same way as all my neighbours.

Did you install new RG6 coax along with your new UHF aerial or did you reuse the existing  coax possibly RG59 ?

RG6

RG59

 .

It was an existing RG6

I would be checking what type of splitter is installed, I have a 20 meter extension cord that I use if I suspect 1 outlet is better than another , saves moving the TV, not perfect but works in most circumstances.

I switched them around and no difference

Logic would indicate a problem with TV rather than Freeview  or your aerial and cables.

Panasonic Support available here.

I tend to agree with Paul. However what signal strength is each TV indicating? If there's a significant difference between the two TVs using the same antenna connection that would confirm a TV fault. Confirm you have only a UHF antenna and you have removed any other. Given your location I would expect around 100% signal and quality on both TVs. Receiving only one of three muxes usually happens in fringe areas.

Once again, check all your connections. Nearly all of Auckland should be able to receve all channels unless there is an antenna/co-ax problem or a faault with the TV. Check the TV menu on each TV and see what signal strength and quality you are receiving.

I have spoken to LG support and this is an issue in NZ with a lot of the larger TVs. Apparently there is an ongoung investigation to resolve it. (Something about the broadcasters compatibility with the freeview version on the tv)
